7:12 am
come down and meet with her at this particular address. >> reporter: mee drew national attention three years ago when she developed an uncontrollable case of hiccups. e appred multiple times on "today." >> it's kind of funny. >> it's not. >> reporter: on a radio program monday said her daughter's fame caused her problems with people she met. >> i have said for a while now that her case of the hiccups wasn't a case of the hiccups. it was a curse of the hiccups, and you kw jennifer, she's a lovable,weet little girl that would not hurt a fly and where things went wrong, i don't know. >> reporter: her landlord said she had questionable friends. >> she just got influenced by the wrong people and she would go in for the excitement or whatever. >> reporter: but he too said she was a sweet girl and was surprised by her arrest on a murder charge. and police say even though they don't believe mee pulled the
7:13 am
trigger, her alleged involvement in the original felony, the armed robbery in which a man was killed, is why she too under florida law faces a rder charge. mee has hired an attorney, but he has not spoken publicly about the case. the murder investigation is now being handled by the homicide unit of the st. petersberg police department. good morng to you. >> good morning. >> your chief just said in mark's report that jennifer admitted to her role in a robbery gone awry. what specifically did she tell your investigators? >> what she did is she ultimately admitted that she met the victim at a social net working site and ultimately made several phone calls back and forth and had him meet her downtown. anwhen he arrived at that location, she brought him to the rear of the residence, where the other two individuals were
7:14 am
waiting. at that time it was supposed to a robbery, obviously it went awry and our victim in this case was shot. >> is it true that you don't believe she was involvein the actual shooting itself and would you explain why she's been charged with felony murder? >> we don't believe at any time she was involved in actually shting, we have an idea who handled the gun at that time. she walked away as the gunshots were being fired. unde florida law because she is an accessory to the robbery and it resulted in a death, she's also charged with first-degree murder which is punishable by life in prison. >> on monday her mom talked about all the attention she was getting because of th hiccups she was enduring and she called it the hiccup curse. she inferred that all the attention she had been getting somehow led her astray, what do you know about this? >> it's possible. i thk that's something that
7:15 am
will be brought up eventually through her attorney as the court proceedings continue on. sometimes you ne s when you lea transient lifestyle, you tend to hang around unsavory individuals. some of thendividuals she was previously with, obviously her ex-boyfriend is in jail for an unrelated robbery. so you kind of deal with people that are unsavory in that ligh >> my understanding is that a lot of these connections were made via the internet. will you be looking into those connections to see in fact what information you can glean about that? and also you mentied the word transient lifestyle, that needs to be explained. >> she had met the victim on a social net working site, it was and facebook or a myspace, but less known, we're still working
7:16 am
getting the subenas to find out what went on back and forth between her and the victim. in terms of her lifestyle, we d a number ofpportunities through the police department to make contact with her through 13 separate polic reports. most of the time she was found in different locations, different apartments and different residences, she tended to move from one locationo another. >> sounds like a whole part of the story we're still getting to the bottom of. thank you so much for your time th morning and bringing us up to date. >> you're welce, thank you. and now let's get a check of the rest of the morning's top story's from natalee morales. >> good morning, everyone we begin with a new development involving iran's nuclear program. today iran said it began load i ing -- despite international

7:18 am
inflation protected securities at a negative yield which is basically a sign that investors do expect inflation to go higher, a big reason for the fed meeting this week, where they will announce another round of bond offerings, some annoue inflation is already here with consumers already paying the higher pce for corn and cotton. the 33 miners rescued earliethis month got a kick out -- the miners lost 3-2 and pini yeier piniera joked that they're great players but they're out of shape. >> paul as you might remember correctly picked the outcome of all of germany's world cup soccer matches plus spain's victory over the netherlands in

regional carrier very often with a major airline's logo painted on the plane. it was the crash of flight 3407 in buffalo last year that has focused a spotlight on airline code sharing arrangements. the passengers on flight 3407 bought tickets on a continental flight. but the continental flight called continental connection was really colgan air. >> i think if you were to ask them which aline he was flying, he would have said continental. >> reporter: the ntsb's findings were that the fir officer and captain were in over their heads. they failed to operate air spee causing the plane to stall and crash. now the ntsb is looking at the business of code sharing, how much it saves the airlines and what it means f passenger safety. >> we think the public has a

7:34 am
lengths to make sure the product is not sold to underaged drinkers. they also say four loko is being unfairly blamed because the washington students were drinking all kinds of alcohol and in a written statement added our products are not energy drinks as they have been called and when consumed responsibly, they're just as safe as any other alcoholic verage. and while some universities are working to rid their campuses of these products, representatives of four loko say they don't disagree, they say restricting their product as well as other alcoholic beverages on college campuses makes sense. >> on that note, kristen welker, thanks so much. let's get a check of the forecast. and in for al, we have got stephanie abra. >> we're waiting for taylor ift, we have got our hots and some people have shirts.

7:39 am
reflect on everything that's happened and nights are the worst. >> whyre nights the worst. >> because that's when we're together and, mornings and nights we tell each other we love each other and we kiss each other and i miss it. i don't have him there to hug me and hold me anymore. >> as janet said, no one would blame you if you just privately grieved if you went away and, you know, just dealt with this ivately. but you have made a decision and pam, you as well, to be out there in front of the public with the message you want to get out to the people and also to the president and the congress. what is the message. >> that we need to wake up. we need to wake up to what's going on in our backyard. i mean obviously, i support what's going on in iraq, but at the same time, ts is our backyard. this is right over a river, it's not an ocean, it's a river. and we need to focus on what's going on over there. what exactly is going on over there? >> wars.
7:40 am
it's a war zone right now. escially between the cartels. and the authorities hear of the cartels and the cartel are running it. the president and the government, they don't have control of tir country, it's the cartels who run the country. >> i remember right after your husband disappeared we talked to you on the air and you said at the time that you both knew that it was dangerous to be in mexico, something you had talked about. looking ba now and obviously hindsight is 20/20. what do you wish you had done differently that day? >> i wish we would have stopped and talked to the locals or talked to the authories and ask them what has happened recently and this is where we're going, what do you think about that? we don't know tt was a high drug traffic area, we had no idea. we just knew there had been pirate attacks and we, you know, you don't know where ectly that is on the lake. and we didn't even have a clue that this was high drug traffic
7:41 am
for the drug cartels. >> and do you feel that people should stay out of mexico? would that be your advice to americans? >> yeah. i love mexico, i think it's a great country, it's got beautiful destinations, but i'm not goin back for a really long time. and it's sad because i really like it and we were planning on going back over there in february. and i'm not going to -- i don't think we should support a country that's trying to hurt our people over here. >> what have the investigators over in mexico said about the status of the investigation. it was suspended after that lead investigator was found beheaded. has it bee resumed? >> it doesn't surprise me that mexico has stopped the search. but i would hope that mr. obama and mrs. clton, that if this was their child, you know, they're saying that everything can be done -- they're doing
7:42 am
everything that can be done, bu if this was their child, would they feelverything has been done? as long as david doesn't come home, enough hasn't been done. so it's like i hope they continue to put pressu on mexico. to find david. to let us put him to peace. >> but as every day goes by, it must cross your mind that y they'll never find your husband, especially if they have stopped the investigation? >> the search has definitely stopped. sunday and monday when i did those long hours with the witness statements,hat was with the federal investigators, people who in the federal area and they are -- >> these are mexican investigators? >> yeah, they're the ones that are going to be continuing the investigation, the state has exhausted their resources and now it's kind of a federal investigation. >> and do you trust those federal investigators to do their job? you met with them for 16 hours,
7:43 am
what was your impression? >> i think they do want to solve the case. i know at the same time it's hard to because iis in a high -- area. really they need to call in their navy and sto that area and take over all the borders and the navy is the ones that the cartel actually kind of fear and that's what i think needs t be done. but as for the investigation, they really have if ever come in the united states to meet with a victim. i mean a few times. so that's speaks highly to me and i really do hope they take it serious and want to do something about it and find him. >> we appreciate you being here "toda today, tiffany and pam, thank you very mh. and we're back right after this.

♪ i'll be back in time 25 years ago today marty mcfly first hopped on the delorean and went back to the future. you can experience it like never before on blu-ray. first let's take our own trip back in time. >> reporter: a teenager, an invent inventor and a sports car. >> you built a time machine? how of a delorean? >> reporter: with the help of a flux capacitor and a little plutonium, the delorean transported marty mcfly back in time and turned him into a household name. back to the future was the number one movie at the box office for eight straight weeks when it was released in the summer of 1985, going on to
8:10 am
become the highest grossing film of the year. the moe featureded michael j. fox best known for his role on "family ties" veteran television star christopher lloyd, leah thompson and the eccentric christian glover. the time traveling teenager was born. using doc brown's invention, marty is sent from 1985 back to 1955 where he must make sure his parents meet and follow in love. >> i'm george, george mcfly. i'm your density. >> reporter: but by interfing, he alters history and almost erases himself from the future. after repairing the damage, marty must find a wayo return to present day. originally eric stoltz was kass
8:11 am
as marty mcfly, but it wasn't working and fox was recast in the role. but because of his commitment to fami ties, fox had to film during the night, forcing the crew to race through reshoots and post production in an effort to make its summer release dates. "back to the future" went on to produce two more films in the franchise, making it one of the most successful tlogies of all time. >> roads? where we're going, we don't need roads. and the stars of the is "back to the future" frahise are michael j fox, christopher lloyd and mary stein burgeon. good morning to all of you, this is so cool. 25 years, can you believe it? >> no.
8:12 am
>> chris, did you know when you were making this film, this is going to be something? i'm on to something? >> no, it was just day to day. you know, hoping everything worked out. i didn't sniff the success of the works. >> bob, this is your baby,t really was and i know when you first shopped this to the studios, disney thought it was too risque, how did you get universal to bite? >> well,t was -- actually i had to make another movie before anyone would take this serisly. unfortunate fortunately, i was ableo do "romancing the stone." i thought, well, maybe this guy can make the movie work. bu stephen spielberg was always a fan, and so we took it back to him and he took it to universal.
8:13 am
>> when you went back in time, why was it 1955? >> because we wanted marty's character to be the same age as his father. so the movie took place in 1985, so we went back exactly 20 years. >> michael j. fox, they wanted you originally, but you were tieded up? >> they mentioned it to me from early on and i couldn't do it because i was doing family ties and gary goldberg couldn't let me out and i didn't even know about it and then they made a change and they came back to me around christmas time and so it was like the december before. >> after the tried your role with eric and it didn't work out? >> so they had a really brief window to get it done. so i came in and i did the show during the daytime and the movie at night and we got it done. >> do you even remember making this movie? >> no, i don't think i did make
8:14 am
it. there wa really big chunks that i can't remember and there are also scenes where we shot my coverage, and they had shot the coverage for the other people before, so i was seeing performances for the first time that i was supposedly in the room with, but i wasn't. >> and christopher, youidn't want this role at first of doc brown? >> i got an offer to go back to new york and do a play. and i thought, that's something i should do. the script for back to the future came in and iidn't know anybody that was involved with it. i looked at it, so i just said, hell with it, y know? and i'll go back to new york and be an artist, you know? but then somebody said, you know, you should really at least take a loo
8:15 am
i took a look and i was persuaded to go back and meet bob. >> thank goodness because i can't imagine another doc brown either. you're the best. >> it changed my life. along with everybody else's too. >> leah when you told you were going to play lorraine and you're going to play her at the age of 47 and the age of 17. r 47, they had to do a lot of work on you every day? four hours of makeup every day? >> it was really funny because they would be like oh, you look so old. and now of course i'm there, but especially in back to the future 2 i was covered in plastic all the way from here to here when i was lorraine with the big boobs, that was a big dream of mine. >> what was the most fun? >> it was all a lot of work, but for me, the fun was seeing when bob v. was appear with something
8:16 am
we we doing, he would just giggle and it was so hard for him and it wafun to make one of his visions come true. >> you provided the music for the film,ut also it was your first acting gig, right? did that come with the deal? >> it wasbob's idea. >> you played a teacher. >>ace it, i nailed it. in one sentence. >> was that typecasting the nerdy pressor? >> it s bob's idea and we thought it would be kind of a nice inside joke if we weren't credited and sort of disguised. >> and marion, you came y you c to the future 3. it's hard to join a well established cast. were you nervous about it? >> i was nervous about the peonalities accepting me into the ranks, i felt like aew kid at school. and they couldn't have been better to me. and michael was a great leading man and host and i had wonderful
8:17 am
love scenes with chris who was very romantic and he and i -- my very first film was in the first love scene i ever did. >> and your first onscene kiss was with mary? >> the first of my life. >> do you have a favorite moment, michael, in all of these films? >> i don't know, is hard to separate the film actually from the experience. >> yeah. >> but in terms of like parts of the film, i love the guitar scene that was so great. and as i said, like leah said, it made he smile thinking about bob, bob would get a shot and then he would say, and he would get this look in his eye and you think oh, my god, what's h
8:18 am
going to do now? and it would be some ridiculous thing and you're like, wow, he should be locked up. >> and the delorean wasn't the original time machine, was it, bob? >> in the first first script it was a refrigerator because it was a whole complicated de. but we realized if you're going to build a time machine, it should be a vehicle, you should be able to move around in it. soe came one the idea of it being a delorean because we wanted it to look like a spaceship in the '50s. >> when marty lands, the family thinks it is a spaceship in the '50s. >> a >> and president reagan actually quoted it in the state of the yuangon address. after that point, the movs took on a different significance culturally. >> they seemed to become part of the culture in a deeper way and
8:19 am
they were used to explain a lot of things. the title back to the future is used a lot. >> why do you think it has resonated with people so much, these movies? >> i think it's got a great message and it's also like incredibly entertaining and, you know, beautifully written, the script was beautiful. but i think that whole idea for me, that if you just stand up for yrself in tt one important moment in your fe, you can change everything and that's really profound and it's a good thing to teach your kids. >> and you all have kids, and they have seen it, i assume, do they get the message? or is it like greek to them? >> it works on all kinds of audiences. >> the cultural references from the '50s, but what resonates with them is the characters and the action in terms of fun and someone said yesterday that the irony, it's ironic the movie about time travel is that it's
8:20 am
timeless. it had something for everybody and it was really wonderful to be part of it. >> do people sll call you mcfly? >> in like butan, in the jungles of thailand. i have been in butan and a bunch of monks came by and one of them went, marty mcfly. >> i love that. that tells you something. >> all right, michael, thank you, chris, mary, leah, huey, and bob. it was great that i s them back to back yesterday and it was a wonderful travel back in time and back to the future. again the back to the future trilogy is now on blu-ray. we are back right after this. ♪ ♪

9:19 am
relax on the food and you overshoot your calories. that would be the time to whip out those measuring cups and spoons, write down everything that you'reating and drinking, be accountle and the numbers areoing to start to go down again. and the second reason is because if you have had a significant weight loss, your metabolism is going to slowly decline in response. and that would be the time to eat a little less and ve a little bit more. so trim off about 200 calories from your foot intake and add ten to 15 minutes on to your exercise plan, if you'realking 30 minutes, 40 to 45 minutes and you're going to ignite those numbers on the scale and they're going to start to move downward on the trend again. >> have y lost a lot of weight, lisa? >> 3 2 pounds since starting my program in august. >> good for you. >> it's going to continue to come off. >> good for you and good luck to

you lisa. and the next question comes from kelsey, at is your question for joy? kelsey, can you hear us? >> caller: yes. >> go ahead, what's your question for joy bauer? >> caller: hi, i'm just concerned because i'm a vegetarian and i'm just wonder if you have any tips for me to get started and if there are any health issues i should be concerned about. >> this is a big one because you know you really got to take your health into account here, joy. >> there are so many health benefits from going vegetarian, first it's a personal choice, how strict to you want to be? if you're a vegan, you want to avoid all animal produc. some people eat fish and seafood and dairy and eggs. if you're eating fish and seafood, you're cered in terms of iron rish protein. but if you're not, you do want
9:21 am
to go out of your way and befriend things like lentil and soy foods, soy nuts. because they're loaded with iron rich protein anduts and seeds have some iron rich protein as well, but much less than the lentils and the starchy beans and the tofu. if you want much more information and you wt to become a vegetarian, i would suggest meeting with a local registered dietitian in your area for a real comprehensive menu plan. and good luck. >> thank u. >> thank you, kelsey, for your question. this is coming to us from lisa in westchester, new york. and lisa writes, iave arthritis in both of my knees and i heard i should take a supplement. what is your opinion on this? >> it's a popular supplement. but i do have to say that the current research is not so encouraging. we do find that if you have modete or severearthritis, that glucosamine and chondroitin
9:22 am
can help with some of the aches and pains. you fall into the moderate to severe category, talk to your doctor, if you get the green light for the supplement, try it for two to three months and make sort of an objective judgment call. there are really no down sides. but if it's not working, it's not worth the energy or the cost. they can be expensive. >> coming up, we're going to switch gears and talk about your makeup shelf life how do you know when your products are expired. taylor swift sings one of her biggest hits.

this morning on "today's" consumer, your makeup shelf life some of us have drawers full of eye shadowings and blushes that you haven't used in months. how do you know when to throw them out? great to have you here. listen, this is a good topic because it's kind of scary i think for a lot of us how long we have been keeping our makeup and it's easy to forget, for example, how soon we suld throw out our mascara. >> masca is the worst, because you're introducing bacteria every time you use it. and when you put it next to your eye you can get infections, you can get all kinds of horrible things. as much as you don't want to throw away this stuff, you need
9:38 am
to throw it awayvery three months. one of the things you know is that it starts to get caky and dry, but once it starts not performing so well, it's time t throw it away. and that's a reason to get cheap mascaras. >> it will also start to smell really bad if you keep it too long. as for eye shadow. i realized as we were doing this segment that i have eye shadows that i have had for three years. and you say we should get rid of them every -- >> three months? because you're introducing bacteria into it every time you use it. >> but they're expensive. >> if you want to make it last longer, you can use disposable and indicators, but you have to dispose of them. they cost under $5, use them once and then throw them away. makeup artists do that a lot. >> lipsticks, i always worry about keeping them too long,
9:39 am
every normal woman, no matter how much she tries can't help but eat some of her lipstick or lip gloss, with her tea or whatever. >> there's something that says you eat like three pounds of makeup over your lifetime. >> it should be looked at by the fda. >> this can actually last about a year, one of the reasons is that lipstick and lip gloss don't have a lot of water in them. but what they do have are oils and the oils become rcid and you can usually tell by the smell. but if not, the lipsticks can get hard and lip gloss can get gloppy. >> as for foundations, is there real negative -- aside from them getting caky. >> they can cause eakouts and they can cause inftions if you use foundation that's gone bad. and you can tell by when they tend to separate and get
9:40 am
streaky. >> what if we are really good about changing out our responses. >> a lot of it has to do with what you use to apply the product. if the product is unopened, it can last a really long time. once it opens and it's exposed to the air, and we all keep our make in the bathroom and it's warm and humid, that introduces lots of terrible things to your makeup. >> what about the blushes? thers the powder and there's the creamy kind. does one kind have a longer life than the others? >> powder blush really lasts a long time, it can last a cple of years. and the creamy is a little bit shorter in it's life span because it's creamy and it hds on to moisture. and the thing is once you know that your blush has gone bad, it gets very hard and it doesn't go on very well. so usually it's the performance is matched up with the expiration date. >> okay, so that's good to know. now one of the ways we can save money is to basically make sure
9:41 am
we keep our utensils, i mean our brushes for example, clean, right? >> yes, which most of us don't do. after you use them, you want to run th over a tissue to make sure they're dry and free of stuff. and once or twice aeek, you want to wash them in a mixture of water and soap. or you can use one of these sponges and use an anti-bacterial -- makeup artists love these because they come with a cleanser that's anti-bacterial so you can wash them and reuse. and if you use disposable makeup sponges, you have to throw them away, otherwise they're petrie dishes. >> one thing i'll never use is these little timers, some people might enjoy having a little note on the makeup to t thoem know when they should get rid of it. >> they' just littl notes
9:42 am
that you go through your makeup once a month and get rid of it. but you and i will never use them. >> two hearty and healthy recipes right after this. [ woman ] traditionally, tuesday is pork op night. but when i take four pork chops and sprinkle on a packet of hidden valley ranch,

10:16 am
best interest. it was to take them with them, up to become a different person. >> the best they could be. >> and that last speech is literally vince lombardi's speech verbatim where he says it is easy to love something beautiful, bright and glamorous but takes special person to love something imperfect. if you lovehat -- in that person, you will lift them up. so this play is about that. and it is about inspiration. and it is about those relationships that can often be fught and difficult, but when you go through them, and you hang in, it is very powerful experience. a lot of women have been coming and saying, my gosh, this is not ju about football this is for us too. >> it is fun to see so many men in the -- in the men's room line. you never see that on broadway. the men have to wait as long as the women do. >> i ow. a lot of the men are crying. a lot of the guys who are in the show have said to me, can you see the guys that are crying? we live on lombardi time at my house. which means ten minutes earlier than you need to be some place

10:46 am
that's going to be my nest egg and they find out they have to wo longer than they thought they would to make ends meet. >> of course, and we're seeing a lot more people go into retirement still carrying a mortgage. and in 1989, only about 49% of 55 to 64-year-olds still had a mortgage or home equity debt. today that number is almost two-thirds. a lot of peopleaying should i pay it off, what should i do? we say chip away at the balance as fast as you can while you're still working. >> wh the problem, with the changes in health care and that sort of thing, that's a huge issue as well. >> well, this could actually help retirees because what if you retire at 60 and don't qualify for medicare until you're aged 65? ere is a big gap there that people are trying to fill. and starting in 2014, you can know if you have some type of pre-existing condition today, maybe an individual policy is just too expensive for you or you don't even qualify, that in 2014 you will be able to buy -- >> that's four years away. what do you do in the meantime?
10:47 am
>> in the meantime, if you have a smallerap you need to fill, you can always stay on yr company's plan, for up to 18 months through cobra. you'll have to pay the full bill unfortunely, but it is still going to be cheaper than what you can buy on your own on the individual market. it is also generally more comprehensive coverage. >> a lot of adult children aren't working. can't find jobs. they're moving back home. i think a lot of their parents are saying, i was going to retire but now i've got him or her. >> junior being home. >> tug of war with your priorities, right? what do you do? and we do -- a lot of people have underestimated, you know what will happen when their kids graduate from college, they'll go out on their ow and be on their own and that is not the case today. yet you still have to focus on your own goals. so, yes, maybe your chi can come move back in with you, you can offer that help, but you don't necessarily need to be helping them get their own first apartment, starting out on their own when you haven't yet secured your nest egg for retirement. >> if you're a parent, that's
10:48 am
all you think about is how you can help your children get to the next step. >> of course. and you figure out how that can work in your plan. the are still things that many parents are doing, maybe you can keep your 26-year-old on your health care plan, that's a great thing for people coming out of school. >> up to 26. >> yes, up to 26, i'm sorry, you're absolutely rit. >> once they turn 27, then what? >> they have to be on their own. a lot of people too refinance their homes because they thought that was such a great thing and they're finding out their home again, another reason their home isn't worth what they thought it was going to be. >> one strategy they can always do is downsize. tradedown. yes this was easier to do when home values were soaring. but it is still possible today. if you -- maybe you have enough equity in your home to actually buy a smaller place with cash or even if you're still years away from payinging o inoff your mor downsizing om that four bedroom house to a two-bedroom condo, that will still
10:49 am
drastically reduce what you have to pay out ery month. >> but then you're psychologically thinking about what has been lost in life as opposed to what you have gained through years and years of hard work. t is an emotional abyss for people, you know? they get so depressed. >> of course. that's why a lot of people are simply working longer. but if yo can, maybe you don't have to necessarily work longer, but just transition to semiretirement. maybe you can work a few extra hours or work as a consultant and the big difference here is for ery dollar that you earn, that's a dollar that you don't have to pull out from your nest egg. yo retirement fund can continue to grow and in the end, you'll ultimately need it to pay for fewer years of your living expenses. >> we don't know what we'r going to pay in taxes next year because congres can't get their act together. it is very, very hard. thanks so much. >> we appreciate it. >> coming up next, the deen brothers heating up our kitchen. they're adorable, these two. >> they're heating it up and the oven isn't even on.
